Question about 1991 Honda Accord
Trying to change the spark plugs and seen oil around the old plug. will it hurt if i just change the spark plugs with the oil around the old ones
Best thing to do is clean around the plug with maybe paper towel or blow with air before removing the plug a lil oil wont hurt but the dirt in it may scorn ur valves. good luck

SOURCE: oil on spark plug
no, not a blown headgasket, remove the valve cover and inspect the spark plug hole seals(tube seals in the valve cover) replace if brittle and old. also change the valve cover gasket since u have it off...adjust the valves as well

Yes the oil can cause the car to lose spark, the oil leak could be caused by the valve cover gaskets around the spark openings, but 9 times out of 10 it is the spark plug tube "O" rings. The top of the valve train comes off of the head, the "O" rings are between the two halves, that will fix the oil leak.

its easy the just pop out and they are included with the valve cover gasket set takes about 10min. to do and allows you to adjust the valves in the proces if the motor soulds like a sewing machine just need a 10mm open end a feeler guage and a flat head screwdriver the exhaust is .011in and the intake is .009in for 2.2l and smaller with the feeler guage or if over 200000mi do .010 and .008 for the quiet running honda it will sould like new and you will be suprized at how easy it is
